    I'll be acquiring an Axe-FX soon, and will be using primarily headphones with it for both practice and monitoring some novice recording (for fun, no business involved at all).

    Recommend me some cans and something to power them!

    Lets say total package cost of $500? is that reasonable?

    Thanks!

    I like what I'm hearing out of;
    0Audio-Technica ATH-M40fs 70..80.00?

    Behringer HA8000 8 channel 139.00

    Sounds good on my system, anyway. ymmv

    The Mackie 402-VLZ3 is only $99 and pretty excellent as a headphone amp.

    I recommend the Beyer DT770 Pro for headphones.

    They are a bit pricey (almost $300) but I am very pleased with the Sennheiser HD25 MKII headphones. They are workhourse headphones for DJ's but they are professional monitoring quality with good overall response.

    I used to get really sore ears from cheaper headphones. These I can wear for hours and they are very comfortable.
